Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
432 AM CDT Tue Aug 30 2016

A cold front extended across southern South Dakota into central
Minnesota and helped spawn some scattered thunderstorms in
southern Minnesota. Further south, a stationary front draped
across eastern Kansas through northern Missouri and was the
focus for a few thunderstorms along Interstate 35 from Kansas City
to the Iowa border. Mostly cloudy skies prevailed across the
region between these two fronts early this morning. At 4 AM,
temperatures ranged in the middle 60s to around 70. Some patchy
fog was found over northern to eastern Iowa into southern
Wisconsin and far southeast Minnesota.

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are forecast again today into
evening across Iowa. Locally heavy rain is likely with any
thunderstorms that do develop. A cold front will sweep through the
state this evening and bring cool temperatures and a less humid
airmass. Dry weather is in store Wednesday through Saturday as
high pressure dominates the weather pattern. A cold front looks to
bring thunderstorm chances to the state Saturday night into

Highs today will be near 80 while the rest of work week, highs
look to range in the 70s. Overnight lows will range in the 50s to
around 60 beginning Wednesday night through the weekend.
